With Wayne Tuner (Director) Having worked with his brothers Ronald & Frank Turner @ Turner Brothers Demolition in 1985 for 15 years.

After the brothers went their separate ways, Wayne went back to plumbing for a period of time, missing his true calling as a demolition pioneer. Wayne returned to demolition helping establish and managed two local demolition company’s over a period of 15 years.

Nick Turner, son of Wayne, started working with Wayne at the age of 16 at the local demolition company Wayne was managing at the time. Nick having developed skills in extracting asbestos and demolition was pouched at 18 to be a supervisor at AARQ an asbestos removal company in Mackay. After a year with AARQ they decided to open a branch in Rockhampton with Nick at the helm to operate in the Rockhampton region, now rivals the father and son competed against one another in a battle for the best removalist. Wayne excelling in demolition and Nick dominating asbestos remediations. Years later Nick and Wayne both decided it was time to start Turner Demolition & Asbestos with the fundamentals and knowledge to approach any removal whether demolition or asbestos are involved to provide the best results clients deserve.
